A binding tool for assisting in the task of folding and pressing bindings and ruffles and to a method of use thereof. The binding tool has a tool body having a top side and a bottom side and a slot disposed through the body for receiving a strip of cloth to be folded. The binding tool is used by placing the body member onto the top of an ironing board whereby the slot extends from the top of the ironing board upwardly through the body member. One end of a strip cloth is folded and then threaded through the slot from the top of the body down so that it extends between the body and the top of the ironing board. A heated iron is placed on a portion of the folded strip of cloth and then the strip of cloth is pulled through the slot whereby it is folded and simultaneously pulled under the iron and between the iron and the ironing board whereby it is pressed. The binding tool body also has a mechanism thereon for adjusting the effective width of the slot to correspond approximately to the width of the cloth in a folded condition thereof. Straps are provided for attaching the binding tool body securely to the top of an ironing board, although other fastening devices can be used instead.
